A pale greenish white nephrite covered vase
18th century
Of oval section and flattened baluster form with reticulated dragon handles and conforming domical cover, carved as if emerging from a reticulated rocky base fronted by a long-tailed phoenix holding a chrysanthemum branch and her young chick waiting at one side; the vase well-hollowed and the matrix polished to a soft luster, marked with some opaque white inclusions and pale russet staining along natural fissure lines.
8 1/8in (20.5cm) high
